I forgot about this case...
Edited on Tue Mar-15-11 07:10 PM by XanaDUer
I've seen it dramatized many, many times on shows like "Unsolved Mysteries", and I have sometimes wondered what the outcome was. It seems there was, finally, an arrest of the suspected perp:

ANIP - (CNN) -- A man who gained international notoriety when he kidnapped his daughter while leading a double life impersonating a member of the moneyed Rockefeller clan has been charged with murder in Los Angeles.
Prosecutors filed a criminal complaint Tuesday alleging a single murder count against Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter.
Gerhartsreiter, 50, is accused of killing John Sohus, 27, who vanished with his wife, Linda, in 1985. His dismembered remains were found nine years later as workers dug a backyard pool at a home his mother used to own in San Marino, California.
Linda Sohus, then 28, has never been found. Except for a few postcards that appeared to have been mailed by the couple from Paris in 1985, her friends and family have not heard from her since.

However, the arrest was for kidnapping his own daughter, not the Sohus' mysterious disappearances.
